Happy New Year! The end of another year and the start of the new.
A massive thank you to everyone who donated furniture, clothes, bric-a-brac, books and money to help those diagnosed locally with cancer. It really is our life blood and without your kindness we couldn’t continue. A huge shout out also to all the volunteers in the shop, on the van, manning reception at the Respite Home, manning the phones, caring for patients in the community, counselling and driving patients. Your selfless actions and your hard work makes a huge difference. It really is appreciated, especially by the people that we help.
With your help in November we assisted with:
18 Drives to hospital
12 Loans of equipment
Race For Life
Final figures are still coming in with over 8,303€ raised so far, so once again a huge thank you to everyone who took part and all those who sponsored them.
This was held on 27th November at the Respite Home, Camposol B and although it was scaled down, it raised an amazing 1,218.20€. Thank you to everyone that attended and to all the volunteers that gave up their time.
The Harlequins Rock Choir performed at the Club House on Tuesday 14th December and raised 280.52€ for MABS in their first performance since Lockdown. They were brilliant and were enjoyed by all who attended.
